Making New Friends - Meeting New People
Meeting and making friends with people from different cultures
Associating with old or new people may be like a form of meditation. You may absorb the energy of your friends, your culture and those who you associate with until you start becoming like them. If you associate with negative people you may become ill, negative, anxious and depressed. Your personality may not get a chance to develop well. If you associate with successful new people and new friends you will also become successful. If you associate with loving new friends you will be Loving as well as being loved.
Sometimes for the development of happiness and freedom we have to move forward in life, sometimes alone. You may need to make new friends and meet new people by travelling to a new town or even travel to a new country and culture to meet new, happy loving people. Meeting new friends brings out new aspects of ourselves that we never previous explored and that we never new existed. This may be part of moving into freedom.
While becoming responsible for your life and moving forward, you may surround yourself with wonderful new friends. New people who really love you, respect you and care for you. Experiencing new different cultures and people helps broaden your perspective of life. That is the true freedom for someone who may have come from a restricted environment where people have limited ideas and beliefs about their own life and their own potential to be free and make their dreams come true. I enjoy the company of people who have a wealth of knowledge and experience of living, working and travelling around the world. Associating with multi-cultured people is one of the healthiest things I can suggest for personal development. It helps expand your consciousness and cultural knowledge base.
Your life, your thoughts and behavior become more free, more loving and more flexible compared to how people in your old environment may have lived. The goal is to be free from anything and anyone. You need to be responsible for your life without having to depend on anyone. Meeting new people and making new friends from other countries helps you to expand your consciousness and experience the world from a bigger picture.
